Personal profile


Dr. Dheer obtained Bachelors and Masters in Pharmacy from Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Drug Research, Punjabi University, India. Based on her academic background she joined Prof. Stuart Graham’s group for doing PhD studies in Clinical Medicine from Macquarie University, NSW. Her area of research focuses on identifying the mechanisms underlying retinal neurodegeneration in various disease conditions and developing pharmacological therapeutics to protect retinal neurons. Currently, she is a postdoctoral fellow investigating interactions between neuroserpin (a specific enzyme inhibitor) and amyloid beta in the brain and retina in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Her research utilizes various pharmacological, molecular biology and cell culture based techniques.
